many years collectors of German bayonets have had to buy bayonet
reference books from a variety of sources, each with a different way of
listing individual specimens or groups, and often contained within
larger volumes that show bayonets from all over the world.
This two part publication privately published by the author, is an
attempt to give both new and established collectors a comprehensive
guide that clearly identifies the rare and unusual from the more common
bayonets. Starting at the earliest date and keeping original, modified
and later types in family groups. Each full length bayonet photograph
has been numbered in sequence, with a brief description of the model
type and scabbard, plus details of the manufacturers trademarks,
regimental markings & dimensions. I have also added some
interesting troop photographs and where possible shown bayonets fixed
to the rifle.
The first part contains hundreds of detailed photographs of many
interesting & unrecorded specimens from collections throughout
